Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“By casting light on the many factors that influence purchases, Shoptimism gives readers the chance to take control of their spending and do it more efficiently.” Washington Post
“Well researched and including an extensive bibliography, this study of shopping in America from the perspectives of shopper, retailer, and advertiser may at times overwhelm the reader with too much information, but it’s an engaging read and would be a solid choice for those interested in consumer or marketing studies.” Library Journal
“Frangione is something of a set-up man for the author. He nails punch lines, pauses for sarcasm, and fairly drips with disdain when recounting stories of resistant consumers who think they can outsmart the experts. It’s a lot of fun. Listen well and be educated.” AudioFile
